Burnley picked up a 1-0 win over QPR on Monday to seal their return to the Premier League with a game to spare.
Sean Dyche’s men knew that a win would be enough to earn a top-two finish as Brighton’s draw with Derby earlier in the day meant that it was impossible for them to drop down to third ahead of the Seagulls facing Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Sam Vokes scored the all-important goal, as the Clarets know that a win at already-relegated Charlton this weekend will ensure that they are crowned champions.
It has been just 359 days since Burnley were left heartbroken having been relegated from the top flight of English football. However, they have wasted little time in dusting themselves down and getting back to the Premier League despite losing several key players last summer.
Dyche will hope to end the season as champions ahead of a busy summer transfer market as he plots a way to keep the club up and avoid a quick return to the Championship.
